Why does OpenCL on Linux need X?

I was wondering why my GPU (Radeon HD 7790) isn't recognized as compute

device without X running on Linux? Sure, I can make it work, I can make

the X session fairly minimal (in terms of memory and other resources it

might consume), but I'd still appreciate if I did not have to deal with

X at all on the machine.


So, what's the reason? Is AMD planning to "fix" this?
